Tea For Two

I absolutley love hot tea.English breakfast tea is my favorite.It's a must have for my day.lol.I have tea and cake almost everyday.lol.I collect tea sets and have to buy one cup and saucer before leaving an antique store.All my cute ones are in storage so thought i would share pics from my favorite tea house in North Carolina.They have a wonderful english breakfast tea.unfortunatley thier clotted creme isnt as nice.Think it's to hot here most days for that kind of thing.But i try to get as close to the real thing as I can.I cant wait to go back.Thier sandwiches are the best.And everything is fresh.and I love that they use real tea with a strainer not a tea bag.lol. 
Just love this plate
I wanted to steal this little beauty of a cup.I love roses.
our cute tea pots
the sandwich was delicious and so were those giant raspberries.

Vanity

Couldn't finish shopping without some kind of make up accesories.I love make up bags.found these cute ones at Rue 21.The leopard print one is mine of course and the Zebra print I got for my sister.Also got us each these cute animal print make up brush sets.

Holiday Fun

Also got a photo albumn for my holiday photos.I got this cute photo albumn when i got my books.Love the vintage post card style.Will be really good for when me and hubby go to Vegas for VLV Rockabilly weekender.

The Martini

This is the other book I got today called Martini.It has every kind of martini recipe.Looks like loads of fun.The best parts besides the great martinis is that it has history and quotes from actors and actresses from the 40's describing what a martini is to them.So took some pics.I love this book.Both books were $ 5.00 each.

Joan Crawford
Mae West.

Cocktails For Everyone

I'm one of those people who loves cook books Especially ones for mixed drinks.Went into this store called Ooops.what a cute name.must be for when I say Ooops i just spent more money.lol.I got two cool books for drinks.One is called The Pink Panther Cocktail Party.And  he was always so retro I had to have it.almost all drinks are pink so I will have a blast with this book.Here are some pics of it.I just love the illistrations.The other book is called Martini.

*Sigh*

I think I have been un motivated for almost a year.I keep putting things off and just feeling like oh I will do it tomorrow.But I think today I am finally at that breaking point where enough is enough.no more all day in my pajamas when i'm not working,no more letting the laundry and other clutter pile up.I never had it feel this difficult before.It must be a depression and I just never looked at it as that.So just going to give myself a big push and get what needs to be done finished.
